Semhof Organic Green Oat Pellets harvested from the whole plant at the end of flowering are an excellent concentrate substitute with significantly less stress in the stomach, intestines and metabolism than is the case with the feeding of cereal grains. In contrast to the pure cereal grain, the minimal starch contained in the pellets is distributed over the entire plant. The energy content is almost as high as that of oats in the grain, as the raw fibre is very high-quality and easily digestible. Green oats are particularly suitable for horses that are sensitive to digestion and heavy fodder, also for horses with stomach ulcers. A suitable feed also for horses, which need a milder energy feed in comparison to cereal grains for the achievement balance or for the weight increase. Green oats could also be a suitable feed for substance build-up in metabolism-sensitive horses.
Oats were named the medicinal plant of the year 2017. In addition to its grains, which are used classically in horse feeding, it also provides additional remedies through its straw and herb. Due to its high proportion of silicon (silicic acid), oat straw can have a soothing effect on inflammatory skin diseases and itching.
The oat herb has a high proportion of quantitative and trace elements and, like hemp, is rich in secondary plant substances such as anti-inflammatory flavonoids and immunomodulating saponins.

You can feed Semhof Organic Green Oat Pellets soaked or dry. When fed wet, a ratio of 1:2 (1 cup green oat pellets and 2 cups water) with a short swelling time of 10-45 minutes is ideal. Dry feeding is also possible for horses that eat slowly and thus salivate sufficiently. For smaller doses, e.g. as a treat, you can generally administer the pellets dry.
